In 1995 a new logistics site was opened, with another site added in Newbury in 1998, as the business continued to grow.
The business also saw significant growth in the early 2000s, with Eastman Packaging (now GWP Protective) and Corstat (GWP Conductive) becoming part of the business in 2004 and 2006 respectively.
2009 also saw the current branding introduced, with the name changed to GWP Group in order to better reflect the diverse nature of the packaging offered by the company.
